BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip and in Ramallah City, in the central occupied West Bank, protested the United States Trump administration’s decision to cut all funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).

Protesters in Gaza City held signs condemning the US cut as they stood in front of the UNRWA headquarters in the city, saying that the cut represents "declaring war against the Palestinian people and their cause."

Dozens of Palestinians protested the US decision in a protest in front of a United States Agency for International Development office in Ramallah, in which protesters burned pictures of US President Donald Trump and held signs denouncing the decision.
